Crabhouse near DC that serves hard and soft shells?

  • a

I'm trying desperately to please a crowd in from out of town that wants both!

Bethesda Crabhouse doesn't carry soft shell, and I've heard horrible things about Joe's.

Any suggestions?

  1. If you don't mind venturing to Fairfax, I always have good luck at Captain Pell's on Rt. 50 for hard shell crabs. You might want to call to see if they have soft shell crabs, too. I do know that they have an extensive seafood menu. And BTW, their french fries are the BEST!!!
